Sounds like a system problem. Do the ff:

  1. boot the computer with the OS installation cd your computer came with.
  2. repair the current OS
  3. once it has booted up, scan for viruses and heal/delete all of them.
  4. install a registry cleaner and have it fix your registry
A good registry cleaner is the ccleaner, which you can download by clicking on the following URL:

Make sure your antivirus is updated before you do scan for viruses. IF you don't have one, try this one for free:

As soon as i log into my acer desktop, it logs off

Do you get any message indicating as to why? Try booting up into Safe Mode.

Restart your PC and then begin tapping the F8 key. Eventually you will be prompted with a list of options. Select Safe Mode with Networking.
If you can log into your system this way without being immediately logged out; you may be able to use System Restore to revert your system back to a time before this started happening. There are several things that could be causing this and rather than walk you through each one right away I figure we should try this first.

Use this tutorial video to walk you through performing a system restore.

Monitoring your kid's PC Usage

You suspect that your kids start the pc sometimes and surf internet without wan a record of when your computer started.

Windows maintain an event log which documents all system starts and shut downs.based on that ,the free tool pc on/off time lists the last operating times of the computer and presents it to you in an easy format.
The program is available for free at .
After extracting the Zip file to an empty folder,you can directly run the program without the installation process .Just run the file "pconofftime.exe'.The tool immediately shows the time at which the computer was switched on in the last week in a graph.
If you donot wish to use the above software you can also check the log by clicking on to "start" and go to "run" and in run type "eventvwr.msc".The event 6005 is an indicator for a system start and event 6006 is the system shut down .

No start task bar in safe mode

It sounds like explorer.exe is being turned off. When you log in to Safe Mode hit Ctl+Alt+Del to bring the Task Manager and see if explorer.exe is running under Processes. If not, you can go to the Applications tab in Task Manager and click the New Task button and simply type in explorer.exe.
If this does not give you your Start Menu and Task Bar then you need to take your computer back to the repair service and have them fix it properly this time. Otherwise, you'll have to reinstall the operating system.

After logging in to the dial-up after about 5 minutes it kicks of line.the dial-up company says shows we are online

If you can get cable internet service, it will fix that problem. Your modem transfers 54bps over a phone line that transfers other info over that same line so from the service side of that deal you get the drops time from the internet. It's called (timeout from the internet protocal).

When i start the computer the sign log in off shows up

Hi there!

no need to panic. This is a safety feature with Windows. If you log-off the computer will normally ask you if you want to log-on again. This would NOT turn off the computer. If you want to shut-down the computer, simply push the power button on your CPU.. This will automatically shut the computer off. hoping you could rate this as: FIXYA!

Start up problem

Techguru2009: The startup fails to load because you have too many programs trying to start at the same time when you log on. To fix this problem you are going to sacrifice what programs you want to start up when you log on. first I asume you are using windows operating system. click the start button, click on run, type msconfig, press enter. Click on Startup tab. Uncheck the box for programs you do not want to start when you log on. Careful not to disable windows startup programs. Hope this helps.

My laptop won't shut down properly!

Is it possible that you have changed the settings of what buttons do what on your system? E.g. you could have changed the power button to "switch user" instead of "shut down", to check this (in XP) go to "Power Options" (in Control Panel" and then click on the "Advanced tab" at the top, then select "Shut down" from the drop down menu at the bottom of the window.

If this is already set to shut down then maybe you could do a system restore in case another setting has been changed, restore it to before the PC started doing this.

Alternatively try actually choosing "Turn off Computer" from the Log On screen (press Ctrl + L to get to this screen, or choose switch user/log off). If you are using Vista I beleive that there is a shut-down option from the Log In Page there (which again you can access by pressing Ctrl + L on the keyboard.

Hope this helps!
